McCullough discusses countermeasures for the Marburg filovirus and the fatal Marburg virus disease; do I agree, YES! 100% that we do not try to vaccinate ourselves out of any future crisis, we treat!
by Paul Alexander
Yes we use empiric treatment and we use safe effective anti-virals that exists as they did for this fraud COVID pandemic; the COVID OWS vaccine program failed! disastrously so & shown to be deadly
Again, we are trying to educate and inform and I take issue with both administrations (Trump and Biden) as to the devastating failed responses to the COVID crisis. Their actions killed tens if not hundreds of thousands needlessly. Start to finish. This was a fraud manufactured pandemic. It never was an emergency of pandemic levels. I say again, I do not blame any of the POTUSs, I blame the inept corrupt malfeasant ‘dark’ forces (and public health officials) who used COVID and created COVID (non-pandemic) and the fraud response to harm a POTUS and then to accrue power.
This is not a political stance by me, yet recognizing that politics is wrapped up in COVID, all aspects of it. We thus cannot separate the 2.
McCullough’s salient substack is below and he chose to consider the issue of another pandemic by exploring Marburg virus as the offending pathogen (I would also argue that this type of thinking can be extrapolated to influenza (bird flu) etc.):
‘There have been sporadic outbreaks of Marburg’s disease in sub-Saharan Africa for 50 years.
“After an incubation period of 2-21 days, symptom onset is sudden and marked by fever, chills, headache, and myalgia. Around the fifth day after the onset of symptoms, a maculopapular rash, most prominent on the trunk (chest, back, stomach), may occur. Nausea, vomiting, chest pain, a sore throat, abdominal pain, and diarrhea may appear. Symptoms become increasingly severe and can include jaundice, inflammation of the pancreas, severe weight loss, delirium, shock, liver failure, massive hemorrhaging, and multi-organ dysfunction.” (CDC)
‘With this vignette, I can tell you as a doctor I will refuse to sit in lockdown and wait for a vaccine. In 2020, Kortepeter et al published a paper highlighting potential treatments and future vaccines.
Not mentioned is hydroxychloroquine which other papers have proposed as being a useful first empiric approach. Among the immediately available products in the world to consider that are known to be safe—would be hydroxychloroquine and favipiravir, a Japanese antiviral used for influenza and COVID-19.’
McCullough reminded us that the Table 1 treatments in the publication by Kortepeter et al. are problematic with toxicity e.g. Remdesivir (kidney and liver toxic):

McCullough reminded that ‘we need to be looking at papers that give guidance on empiric strategies when and if another crisis develops. The world has concluded we cannot vaccinate our way out of future outbreaks with untested, unsafe genetic vaccines. Hence our focus will be treatment, treatment, treatment.’ Of course, with the proper validated diagnostic tool, it is imperative that this be part of the response yet focus on the term ‘proper’.
